Looking under the hood today and saw this connector. Looks like a blank? Does anyone know what it’s used for?

That is the Connector Position Assurance Clip. It's used to disconnect the HVB from the system in the event of an accident. You pull up on the clip and insert a pin as a lock-out.

Here's the Rescue Card for the Mach E which uses the same system. Oddly, the Rescue Card for the Escape HEV/PHEV appears to just say disconnect the 12V battery.


Edit: The CPA is called out in the HEV/PHEV Battery Removal Guide for the Escape:
